Family Focused Solutions provides counseling services to Tennessee's Families First participants.

We provide individual counseling, family counseling, parenting classes, life skills training, FLEX (Forming Lasting Employment Skills), self-advocacy training and case management to address these barriers that prevent self-sufficiency.
